With the deadline to submit the player retention list coming to an end on January 4, the CSK - one of the most popular franchises in the history of IPL - has brought some really good news for their fans. As reported by Indian Express, a CSK official divulged,
"We are retaining Dhoni and Raina, and the third we are contemplating."
Earlier, CSK Director George John had revealed that there was no way that the franchise would let go off two of its most seasoned campaigners.
"That's an obvious one. We will have him (Dhoni) back as captain. We don't know by when we have to submit it (the list of retained players). Once the deadline is set, we will finalise the list. For Dhoni, it would be like returning home, 100 percent. That's what he also said during the TNPL. Raina is not only popular among Super Kings fans, but also a proven match-winner in IPL. Last season, I think he averaged around 40."
The full retention list of all the franchises will be announced on January 4.
